COURSES OF STUDY. 



Collegiate Department. 

In the Collegiate Department of McMinnville College there are at 
present two courses of study ; the Classical and the Scientific. The Class- 
ical course extends through four years and is essentially the same as the 
Classical course in Eastern Colleges. For those who desire broad and 
thorough culture, the Classical course is beyond question the better one 
of the two. In' this course the foundations are broad, deep and substan- 
tial. The great majority of the best educators hold that for thorough dis- 
cipline of the mind the study of Latin, Greek and Mathematics is indis- 
pensable. The Classical course gives special prominence to these three 
great branches of study. Every young man and woman of high purpose 
and lofty ideal ought to plan to take this course . 

The Scientific is also a four years coarse. It has the same amount of 
Latin, no Greek, but more French and German, and a more extended 
course of history and the sciences. The Scientific course is especially 
adapted to those who desire a fuller course in Modern Languages 
and in Scientific studies, and do not care to take Greek. Upon the 
successful completion of either one of these courses, the student is entitled 
to the degree of A. B. The graduates of either of these courses who have 
pursued literary or scientific studies for three years after graduation, are 
entitled to the degree of A. M. 

Academic Department. 

In the Academic Department there are four courses oi study. The 
Classical course requiring three years; the Scientific requiring three 
years; the Normal requiring two years, and the Business requiring two 
years. The Classical course is preparatory to the Collegiate Classical ; 
the Scientific, to the Collegiate Scientific. The Normal course is especially 
adapted to those who are fitting themselves for teachers. The Business 
course is especially adapted to fit young men and women for the practical 
duties of business life. Either of the two-year courses is an excellent 
course for those who, for any reason, cannot remain in school more than 
two years; but beyond question the most thorough discipline and the 
choicest culture can be secured only by the study of the languages. 

Any student completing any one of these four courses is entitled to a 
Certificate of Graduation. The Graduating Exercises from this depart- 
ment will henceforth constitute one of the most interesting features of 
Commencement week. Especial attention is here called to the fact that 
a student will receive much more benefit by entering upon one of these 
courses than by taking selected studies. These courses are arranged with 
a view of giving the student the most complete education he can obtain 
in the limited time of two or three years. Until there are High Schools 
of a high grade all over the North Pacific coast, the Academic Department 
of McMinnville college will be a necessity, and so long as this Department 



8 

is maintained, the very utmost effort will be put forth to build up and sus- 
tain a first class Academy, — one that has no superior in the United States. 
The great need of the Pacific coast to-day is not so much Colleges as first- 
class Academies, — Academies with liberal endownments and first-class 
Faculties. It is such an Academy, first-class in every respect, and from 
which it will be a distinguished honor to graduate,— that the Trustees of 
McMinnville College are determined to build up in McMinnville. 

Students not desiring or not able to take a regular course, will be al- 
lowed to take any study with the regular class in the study, if they are 
fitted to do so, but. special classes for such students cannot be organized 
unless they are willing to pay extra. 

The Fees for the Degrees in course, including Diploma, are 
FIVE DOLLARS each ; for the Certificates of graduation, TWO DOL- 
LARS AND A HALF. 

Requirements for Admission. 



For admission to the Collegiate Classical course, candidates will be 
examined in the studies of the Academic Classical course, or their equiv- 
alent. For admission to the Collegiate Scientific course, students will be 
examined in the studies of the Academic Scientific course, or their equiv- 
alent. For admission to any one of the Academic courses, the require- 
ments are as follows : Arithmetic, Brook's Written to Percentage ; Eng- 
lish Grammar, Swinton's or Sill's Elementary Lessons; Reading, Profi- 
ciency in the Fifth Reader ; Geography, United States and Europe. 

Preparatory Department. 

In connection with the College and under its control there is a Pre- 
paratory Department in which thorough instruction is given in the com- 
mon branches. Those not prepared to enter the Academic Department 
may secure the necessary preparation in the Preparatory Department. 
Students taking two studies in the Academic Department will be ex- 
pected to pay Academic tuition ; and students taking two studies in the 
Collegiate Department, Collegiate tuition. The courses of study, both of 
the Collegiate and Academic Departments, are given on the following 
pages.

GENERAL INFORMATION 



Location. 



McMinnville College is located just outside the city 
limits of McMinnville, Yamhill county, Oregon. For the 
last three years McMinnville has had a healthy, rapid, 
and substantial growth. During the last year it has be- 
come the county seat, and there is now being built a $45- 
000 court house and a $10,000 public school building show- 
ing that the people have enterprise and a growing interest 
in education. McMinnville is easily accessible from every 
part of the North Pacific coast, being situated on the 
Southern Pacific Railroad, West-side Division, fifty miles 
south of Portland. For all points south of McMinnville 
there is direct connection, either by the way of Albany 
and Corvallis or by stage from Salem to McCoy and thence 
by the Southern Pacific to McMinnville. For accessibil- 
ity, for healthiness, for attractive and beautiful surround- 
ings, for intelligent and christian society, in a word for 
all the elements that make up a first-class location for a 
Christian College, McMinnville stands pre-eminent. 
Building and Grounds. 

The College has a magnificent campus of thirty acres, 
admirably adapted for the purpose and beautiful for situ- 
ation. Upon this campus there was built in 1882 one of 
the finest buildings for educational purposes to be found 
on the Pacific coast. The building is one hundred and 
six feet in length, seventy-nine in breadth, and four 
stories in height. The basement story contains accom- 
modations for a boarding department ; the second affords 
a commodious chapel, President's rooms, class rooms, etc,; 
the third and fourth, society rooms, library, and a large 
number of eligible rooms for students. 
Government. 

The institution, though patronized and equipped by 
the Baptist denomination, offers its advantages to all 
shades of opinion alike. The denomination that has been, 
in all ages, the champion of religious liberty, will as- 
suredly be the last to infringe upon the conscientious con- 
victions of others. It is the only Baptist College in the 
state of Oregon. 



13 

Western Washington is also within easy reach of Mc- 
Minnville and has exhibited in many ways her interest 
in the building up of the College. 

Discipline. 

Self-government is the ideal at McMinnville College. 
Students are expected to conform to the usages of good 
society, and to conduct themselves as they would in a re- 
fined, well-ordered home. Only those who are willing to 
do so are desired as pupils. No set of rules to cover all 
cases can be laid down. A high moral sense is necessary 
to guide a student in a society like this. If a student 
does not have this and it cannot be developed in him, 
his parents will be notified, after a due trial, to remove 
him from the school. This is not a reform school; young 
men are expected to give evidence of manhood, and young 
women of womanhood. 

Text Books. 

Only a partial list of text books is here given. Arith- 
metic, Brooks; Grammar, Reed & Kellogg; Algebra, Geom- 
etry, Trigonometry ,01ney; U. S. History, Barnes; Rhetoric, 
Hart; Latin Grammar and Reader, Harkness; Harkness' 
Preparatory Course in Latin Prose Authors; Greek Gram- 
mar, Goodwin; First Lessons in Greek, White; Anabasis, 
Goodwin. 

English Composition and Elocution. 

During the last year a great advance has been made in 
this department. Excellent work was done both in writ- 
ing and in speaking. The work of the Rhetoric Class in 
Essay writing is worthy of special mention. In this class 
prizes were offered for excellence in English Composition. 
The first prize was awarded to Addie Clark and the sec- 
ond to Mattie Walton. During the coming year, even more 
attention will be given to this department. Kindly crit- 
icism in essay writing and drill in elocution are fur- 
nished without extra charge to all students. 
The English Bible. 

Special attention is called to the fact that by recent 
action of the Board of Trustees, the English Bible is 
hence-forth to be a Text Book in McMinnville College. 
This book, whose study enabled Milton, Shakespeare, 
Dante and scores of great authors to write their immor- 



14 

tal works; whose study has given hundreds of men re- 
markable power in the use of the English language; 
whose studv has changed the civilization of nations, has 
been excluded from the curriculum of the Christian col- 
lege altogether to long. It is hoped that at no distant 
day there will be in McMinnville College an English 
Bible Professorship. Until that day comes, the Presi- 
dent will have this study in charge and give to it as earn- 
est effort as his duties will permit. 

Library. 

Duriug the past year a successful movement was in- 
augurated to enlarge the library. McMinnville College 
Library Day, may be considered a permanent feature of 
our denominational life in Oregon, and thus the College 
will be able to add to its library regularly. Quite an ad- 
dition has been made in the last year and larger addi- 
tions are looked for during the coming year. Through 
the influence of Hon. J. N. Dolph, many valuable books 
are received from Washington from time to time. 

Lectures. 

During the last year the following lectures have been 
delivered before the students: 

Rev. G. J. Burchett, "Christian Activitv in College 
Walls." 

Judge Loughary, "Elements of Success." 

Hon. W. D. Fenton, "Duty." 

Superintendent J. A. C. Freund, "Evolution." 

Hon. F. O. McCown, -'Manhood." 

Rev. D. J Pierce, "Thoughts that Burn." 

Rev. C. A. Woody, "Companionship." 

Rev. H. V. Rominger, "Germany and the Germans." 

These lectures have been able, practical and helpful. 
Such a course of lectures has an educative influence that 
cannot well be measured. This effort to have a course of 
lectures was so successful this first year that it can prob- 
ably be considered a permanent feature of the College. 
Reading Room. 

The reading room is open to all students. The com- 
ing year it will contain among others the following 
papers: The Examiner, The Standard, The Christian 
Herald, The Pacific Baptist, The Old Testament Student, 



15 

The Baptist Teacher, The Worker, The Missionary Mag- 
azine, The Helping Hand, The Statesman, The Voice, 
and local and state papers. Any contribution of period- 
cals to the reading room will he thankfully received and 
cared for. 

Societies. 

The Philergian Society, composed of young ladies and 
gentlemen, meets regularly each Friday evening. The 
exercises consisting of singing, debates, essays, recitations, 
Orations, declamations, etc., are of great value to the stu- 
dents. 

The Missionary Society, the Y. M. 0. A. and Y. W. C. 
A. hold regular meetings for the study of missions and 
for Bible study and religious culture. 
Social Culture. 

It is our belief that no place is more favorable for the 
social development of students than a well-conducted 
school for both sexes. Students from a distance will re- 
ceive great advantage by rooming in the building and 
entering into the home-life of the school. The inti- 
mate relation of pupils to their teachers is most import- 
ant. The social intercourse with fellow-students is very 
beneficial. 

Religious Culture. 

In selecting a school for their children parents are nat- 
urally anxious about religious influences. This college 
was founded to promote christian culture. Every teacn- 
er in it is a professed christian. The Baptist church of 
McMinnville takes special interest in the religious cul- 
ture of students. Its prayer meetings are uniformly 
large and valuable. Many of the students are earnest 
christians and deeply interested in their fellow students. 
Firmly believing that intellectual culture and religious 
culture should be closely united, patrons of the College 
may rest assured that earnest efforts will be put forth to 
make the religious atmosphere healthy to the best cul- 
ture of the students. 

Aid to Students. 

It is the aim of the Trustees to have McMinnville Col- 
lege always accessible to young men and women of lim- 
ited means, especially such as desire an education that 



16 

they may become useful in some form of christian work. 
Direct aid is not given to any extent, but a number of 
students are each year furnished with work by the friends 
of the College to pay in part their expenses A boy or 
girl of pluck and perseverence can workout an education, 
and is encouraged to do so. Applications for work should 
be made to the President at an early day and accompa- 
nied with suitable references. Young men with the min- 
istry in view and voung women who desire to fit them- 
selves to become missionaries are especially invited to 
correspond with the President and every effort will be 
put forth to help such secure a thorough education. 
Endowment. 

The College has property and endowment enough to 
remove from every mind the last shadow of a doubt as 
to the permanency of the institution, but it has great 
need of a larger endowment. The completing of the 
Josiah Failing Professorship is the immediate need of 
the College. This fund is now nearly nine thousand dol- 
lars. By adding six thousand the interest on the whole 
fifteen thousand would at once become available, enabling 
the College to employ another Professor and to enlarge 
the work in other ways. Who will complete or help to 
complete this fund at once? The friends of the college 
have had a breathing spell since the building was clear- 
ed of debt, and man} 7 believe that the time has come to 
increase the endowment. 

Rooms and Boarding. 

Room rent in the building is from two to three and a half 
dollars a term for each student. Each room is furnish- 
ed with a stove; the student furnishes everything else. 
If desirable or necessary two students will occupy one 
room. Only two students are allowed to occupy room 
except by special permission of both the Executive com- 
mittee and the President of the College. By two stu- 
dents rooming together considerable can be saved in fur- 
nishing and heating the room. For the coming year Mr. 
Arthur Chandler will have charge of the boarding de- 
partment and will furnish table-board at the low price of 
two and a half dollars a week. Joining the rooms of Mr. 
Chandler and the President's rooms are several fine 



17 

rooms that will be reserved for a time for young ladies. 
This is an excellent chance for young ladies to room and 
board in the College with every advantage of a home in a 
christian family. Several students frequently club togeth- 
er and hire a small house or rooms and do their own cook- 
ing, thus getting board at from a dollar to a dollar and a 
half a week.

such, there is given below a minimum and maximum es- 
timate.

The student ought to spend the whole year in McMinn- 
ville College for about $170.00, aside from his clothes and 
his traveling expenses. 

It is unnecessary and injurious for a student to spend 
much more than this sum. It is desired, both for the 
good of the student and the College, that parents and 
guardians see that students do not spend money in un- 
necessary and injurious ways. 

Payment of Bills. 

Tuition and room-rent are to be paid in advance, dur- 
ing the first week of each term, or the first week in 
school. Painting, Drawing, Music lessons and use of 
Piano are to be paid at the end of every half term. Stu- 
dents are required to show to the President their receipts 
for tuition and room-rent. Students who have not paid 
their College bills at the end of the first week in school

will be denied the privileges of the recitation room until 
satisfactory settlement is made.

Standing Regulations. 

1. The exercises of the institution are opened every 
morning by reading from the Scriptures, prayer and 
singing, and all students are required to be present at 
this exercise. 

2. All students connected with the institution are re- 
quired to attend divine service regularly, at least once 
every Sunday, at the church that they or their parents 
or guardians may select. 

3. On entering or leaving school, and before leaving 
town, all are required to report to the President. 

4. Examinations will be held at the close of each 
term. All recitations and examinations are to be mark- 
ed on the scale of 100; and an average of 70 is required 
before leaving a study. 

5. Written reports in scholarship and deportment 
will be sent to the parents or guardians of each student 
at the close of each term. 

6. Students, or other persons, who, through careless- 
ness or negligence, may injure the buildings or other 
property of the college, shall be assessed by the Presi- 
dent sufficiently to repair such damage, and the amount 
shall be collected by the Secretary of the Board of Trus- 
tees, and, in general terms, all pupils will beheld respon- 
sible for good order and the diligent use of their time. 



19 

7. Students are required to observe as study hours 
the time from 9 a. in. to 4 p. m., and from 7 p. m. to 9 
p. m. After 9 p. m. students rooming in the college 
building are expected to remain quietly in their rooms, 
and after 11 p. m. lights are expected to be out, unless 
the President grants permission to the contrary. 

8. Any pupil, who shall be absent from any recita- 
tion — study hours — or chapel exercise without excuse, 
shall be notified by the President when such absences 
shall reach five in number. When such absences shall 
reach ten, the President shall report the fact to the par- 
ents or guardian of the student. When such absences 
shall reach fifteen, the student shall be suspended. 

9. It will be regarded as a serious breach of rules of 
this institution, for any student to drink any intoxica- 
ting liquors, to have it about their persons, or to enter 
any brewery or saloon where such liquors are furnished. 
It is also forbidden to attend any billiard saloon or skat- 
ing rink, public dance or dancing club, to carry conceal- 
ed weapons, or to use tobacco in any form, in or about 
the college building or campus. 

A Word to Students. 
Do not fail to be present on the first day of the first 
term with the determination to stay in school the full 
year. Your school days are passing by very rapidly, and 
you cannot afford to lose a single week from school the 
coining year. Remember too that classes are formed and 
that work begins the first day. You cannot afford to lose a 
single recitation. Then do not allow such a thought to 
remain in your mind as that you must leave school be- 
fore the close of the year. You are growing old alto- 
gether too fast to think of remaining in school only three 
or six months of the year. Then make up your mind to 
enter the first day upon one of the regular courses of 
study, even though there is no expectation of finishing 
it. Both for dicipline of mind and for immediate prac- 
tical benefit, you will accomplish much more by entering 
a regular course than in any other way. Remember also 
that you can obtain a thorough education, if you will. 
Young man! young woman! you can take your choice; 
you can make self-denial now and be somebody bye and 



20 

bye; or, you can have an easy time now and be nobody 
bye and bye. Do you desire to fit yourself for the duties 
and responsibilities of life? Do you desire to fit yourself 
to fill a position of usefulness and honor? Do you desire 
to be the graduate of a College that has a magnificent fu- 
ture? Your desire may become a reality if you are willing 
to make self-denial and spend a few years in hard work. 
No matter how poor you are in pocket, if you are deter- 
mined to go through College, yon can do it. Will you 
do it? That is the great question. It is a question that 
you and you only can answer. 

A Word to Parents. 

If you cannot give your sons and your daughters any- 
thing else, give them a good education. It may call for 
self-denial and sacrifice on your part, but you can well af- 
ford to make it. Try and keep them in school every 
school day in the year. Then remember that it is of the 
utmost importance in what school you educate your sons 
and daughters. You cannot afford to educate them in 
any other than a christian school. If you are a Baptist 
you cannot afford to educate them in any other than a 
Baptist school. If you are a Baptist in Oregon or West- 
ern Washington you cannot afford to educate them in 
any other school than McMinnville College. 
Special Request. 

You who receive this catalogue will receive it because 
you are believed to be deeply interested in higher educa- 
tion and especially interested in the building up of Chris- 
tain Colleges under the control of some Christian De- 
nomination. You are here especially requested to exert 
your influence in the interests of this College. There 
are many ways in which you can do so. You can speak 
a good word for the College. You can place this cata- 
logue in the hands of persons whose thoughts and hearts 
may thus be turned toward the College. You can send 
the President names of persons who might be favorably 
influenced by a catalogue or a personal letter from him. 
You can remember this school in your prayers. You can 
remember it in your offerings. The College looks to you 
for your help in one or all of these various ways. See to it 
that she does not look in vain.

The Outlook. 

The outlook of the College was never brighter. The 
last year has been in many respects one of the best in its 
history. It has a magnificent campus and fine building 
with no incumbrance upon them. It has a Faculty and 
a Board of Trustees who have unbounded faith in the 
future of the College. It has a constituency that is con- 
stantly increasing. It is situated in the heart of an em- 
pire now in its infancy, but before which there lie bound- 
less possibilities. It has back of it a great denomination 
that is having remarkable prosperity and growth. Sure- 
ly the outlook is encouraging. 

Correspondence with young men and women and espe- 
cially with parents and guardians., is solicited, and any 
information not found in this catalogue will be gladly 
furnished by addressing the President.
